Sidney Rice misses practice, Week 16 fantasy value on hold

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice (knee) missed practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice did not practice on Wednesday because of a knee injury. Rice was in a walking boot during part of last week because of a bruised foot but finished with four catches for 76 yards in the win over the Buffalo Bills.

Rice injured the foot in Week 14 but it's not clear if the knee injury is related. The Seahawks face the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners counting on Rice this weekend will need to pay attention as the week goes along because the knee injury is a new one. Rice has been a solid fantasy wide receiver this season but has a tough matchup against the 49ers on Sunday.

Assuming he's healthy, Rice should be considered a low-end No. 2/3 wide receiver for Week 16.
